Public institution
Clinton Community College, a member unit of the State University of New York, is situated at Bluff Point, approximately 4 miles south of Plattsburgh, on forested heights overlooking Lake Champlain.Clinton Community College (CCC) plays a unique role in the local community and within the state by offering traditional and nontraditional students access to a variety of educational programs taught by a highly dedicated faculty. Students attending CCC have the option of living at home, or they may choose to register for campus housing. Many CCC students attend for two years, earn a degree or certificate, then transfer to a four-year university. Other students graduate and enter directly into the workforce or attend CCC for a short period of time to meet a specific educational need. In the fall of 2015, Clinton Community College enrolled approximately 2,400 full-time and part-time students. While the college features the modern equipment and facilities necessary for contemporary educational needs, its distinctive architecture and spectacular natural setting hint at significant times of the past. In fact, the Bluff Point locale has been the scene of some of the most important events in the founding of the American Republic and its tradition. It is fitting that an area so magnificently beautiful and so much a part of the early development of the United States is maintained for public use and enjoyment. Bluff Point belongs to the citizens of Clinton County who now share the breathtaking scenery and sense of history, which had once been reserved for only a few.
